Additional discussion about possible Saturday contest/picnic get togethers in hope of more members getting involved and using the club stations. Discuss with membership at March meeting.
3.One on One Elmers, Present to membership at March meeting. Are there members who need or would like help in getting on the air with their stations? Question what are our members doing with their stations, what are the interests bands modes and such?
4.Guests and/or new members, Its very important to greet and have conversation with these folks to make them feel welcome let them know what the club has to offer. Nothing worse then ignoring possible new folks, all members should make an effort to make this happen.
5.Field Day Chairman, Time has a way of getting away quickly and June is coming up. Discuss at the March meeting and ask for a new Field Day leader. Tom NY4I and Dave KR4U can advise on the subject. Also where should we hold the event this year?
6.Clayton KJ4RUS Talked about the new SARNET statewide repeater system on 442.850 MHZ tone of 146.2 quite interesting.
7.Dinner Get Togethers, Ask at the March meeting if any interest on this subject. This does not have to include the entire membership unless everyone would like to come , it could be just a small group of folks who would like to go out for dinner and use a signup sheet then decide when and where to go.
Meeting concluded at 3:20pm
